Divyanka Tripathi aka Ishita of "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" has re-entered the Bhalla family in a new avatar. Ishita, who was portrayed to be dead on the show, made a comeback as Sanaya. Except for Raman (Karan Patel), none of the family members are aware of Sanaya's real identity.

Ishita's entry into the family as Mr. Raichand's daughter Sanaya has been planned by Raman and Ishita as they want to take revenge from Ashok (Sangram Singh) and Nidhi (Pavitra Punia) for ruining their lives. In the upcoming episodes, Ashok, who is desperate to sign a business deal with Raichand, will be seen trying all possible ways to impress Sanaya.

This is for the first time in Divyanka's acting career that she has shed her sari-clad Bahu look and is seen in a glamorous avatar with a short hairdo and fashionable attire.

Excited over her new look, the gorgeous actress told The Times of India that she hopes that her new character becomes a style icon for the youth. "It is totally different from whatever I have done in the last 12 years. Nobody has ever seen me in this look. I am not sure how long my new avatar will last, but I am really enjoying it. I feel like a totally different person. I love my new hairstyle, my dress and my face. My character will hopefully be a style icon for the youth," she said.

Talking about sporting a wig, Divyanka said that she is comfortable with her look. "I have performed more tiring stunts like fighting with a crocodile in a lake, jumping off from a cliff, swimming across the lake, other underwater sequences and playing the ghost, so tying my hair for long seems nothing in front of it," she added.
